“We are proud to commemorate the International Youth Day in the UAE on August 12th each year as we honour the remarkable contribution of the UAE youth to the socio-economic development of our nation. The UAE stands as a shining example of youth empowerment, leading the way in inspiring young Emiratis to embrace significant responsibilities, drive innovation, and fuel the growth of our beloved country.
The visionary approach of the UAE not only acknowledges youth empowerment as a social obligation but also recognises it as a strategic investment in shaping the future of our nation. We go beyond mere support, actively engaging young people in decision-making processes, nurturing their leadership potential. Young Emiratis embody the promise of the UAE, destined to play a pivotal role in shaping the lives of future generations and propelling the UAE towards the realisation of the national objectives and fulfillment of the UAE dreams. This vision aligns with the ideology and foresight of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, who has long envisioned our country as “the success story of its young heroes.” Today, our youth hold the reins of decision-making, both in the public and private sectors, as we have full confidence in their ability to shape the present and future of our nation. The Emirati youth represent our hope for a better tomorrow. They are our most cherished and invaluable resource in our nation-building pursuit.
At the Supreme Legislation Committee in the Emirate Dubai (SLC), we wholeheartedly dedicate ourselves to crafting a legislative framework that not only supports and empowers the youth but also provides unwavering support through a robust legal structure. We firmly believe in the boundless capabilities, unwavering determination, and limitless creativity of Emirati youth in driving positive change and fostering innovation. Acting upon this commitment, we, at the SLC, have adopted a unique framework for youth empowerment, fostering an environment that nurtures their excellence.
On this occasion, we emphasise the importance of concerting efforts and unity in empowering youth, as it serves as the cornerstone of national growth and prosperity.”
